CHAPTER HISTORY

Over 50 years of serving the Albuquerque community.

On March 18, 1967, fifteen awe-inspiring Delta Women living in Albuquerque, New Mexico chartered the Albuquerque Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.  The charter members were, Jennie Brown, Margaret Carson, Euola Cox, Sara Davis, Fannie Dawson, Buena Vista Green, Uline Hughes, Artis Hopkins, Lauretta Loftus, Joy Malry, Dorothy McNeil, Anna Swaim, Alfreda Taylor, Ellie Warren, and Ina Webb.  Soror Mona Humphries Bailey, Farwest Regional Director, presented the charter and installed the first officers.

Soror Uline Lovelday Hughes served as the chapter's first president.  Since its inception the Albuquerque Alumnae Chapter has been committed to implementing the Sorority's signature programs, including Jabberwok, Delta Academy, School America, Delta Teen Lift, and awarding scholarships.

Central in our history are projects meant to support families and improve conditions for those less fortunate and underrepresented in our community.  These projects have traditionally included holiday charity drives, Kwanzaa celebrations, and community workshops.

Leading the community as the first of all sororities and fraternities to organize in the Albuquerque area, the Albuquerque Alumnae Chapter established a history of working closely with other community organization such as the Sickle Cell Council of New Mexico, the National Council of Negro Women, the SCLS and the NAACP.  

The Albuquerque Alumnae Chapter has had several highlights in its 50-years in public service.  Among these are receiving the Martin Luther King, Jr. "Keep the Dream Alive" Award and host three Southwest Regional Conferences and a Statewide Founders Day.  To date, the Albuquerque Alumnae Chapter remains the only Alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority , Inc. in the state of New Mexico.  

We continue to expand our public service with programs like the African American Read-In, Socks for Tots, Dress for Success, Habitat for Humanity, Roadrunner Food Bank, Project Share, Adopt a Highway Cleanup, World Aids Day, School Supplies Drive, Spread the Warmth Blanket Drive, Step-2-Success Shoe Drive, and Voter Education and Registration.
